Course overview:  This is the second semester of the two-semester course in statistics for sociology graduate students.  Starting with linear regression models and ending with models for categorical variables, we will attempt to cover many of the key statistical models used in modern empirical research.  Considerable attention will be paid to the assumptions behind these models, and the consequences of violations of these assumptions.  In addition, a major component of the course will be hands-on training in data analysis using Stata.
